  • Group A streptococcal meningitis: Report of a case and review of literature since 1976 PEDIATRIC EMERGENCY CARE Shetty, A. K., Frankel, L. R., Maldonado, Y., Falco, D. A., Lewis, D. B. 2001; 17 (6): 430-434


    Group A streptococcal (GAS) invasive disease has become increasingly common in recent years. However, acute bacterial meningitis caused by this pathogen is unusual. We report a case of GAS meningitis in a previously healthy 21/2-year-old child associated with a dramatically rapid course and fatal outcome. A literature review of previously reported cases is presented. This case serves as a reminder that GAS can cause severe meningitis in otherwise healthy hosts.
